Nom Anor, broke my heart, now I'm aching for you!

So where does the speeder bike launch from?   :P

I don't think this is supposed to be in the $100 price range, more like the cancelled deluxe series range. But the way prices go up, who knows?

My brother and I never ripped the original's cape, so we must not have played with Bespin Gown Leia too much. She did have paint rubs, though.

Why did Kenner make the outfit with the least screen time first? (Aside from Medical frigate Leia, which they never made anyway) Why does Ms. Fisher look so ticked off on that card photo?  :P

Oh, brother.

I though the spoilers that people who saw the theatrical showing were hiding was Ventress's demise (which I wrongly figured that was  sure thing for this arc). Turns out it was Maul.

Why didn't Dooku order Ventress's escape pod destroyed?

There were so many holes in the last act....easy entry on Dooku's ship by Anakin/Obi-Wan being another. Anakin getting his ass kicked despite being a chosen one. (Sith lords ain't your speciality, or Obi-Wan's).

I really don't like TCW trying to jam Maul down our throats with the whole retelling of his species, basically.  In MY Star Wars world, Zabraks still come from their own world...  these Zabraks are just guys the Nightsisters sort of enslave and use for breeding stock or something.  I really dislike the whole retelling of that species though.  Hell, there's some of them on the council!  Twice!  It's goofy how basically TCW is jsut ignoring everything before it.  Some of it is explainable, but some of it I'm simply choosing to ignore at this point.

DId you miss Obi-Wan and Mace Windu's expositionary dialouge? Kenobi said he thought the Zabraks were from Iridonia; Mace replied Maul was raised on Dathomir, but the males of his species came from Irodonia. The ones on Dathomir are apparently a colony (they didn't use the word colony). It was delivered in an odd way, though, "the males of his species" part. We know there's female Zabraks. Saying "The males on Dathomir came from Iridonia" would've made more sense.

Do we know that's Maul at the end? Or it Maul's actual brother (like some us though Oppress was)? Why is Mother Talzin helping Oppress, what is her game? Oppress was the best of bunch of try-outs last episode, but now he has a destiny. Hmmm....

Well, here we go with conflicting ROTS...Kenobi seems surprised Yoda was communicating with Qui-Gon's spirit.

Of course, fans are rationalizing this already. "He was just surprised because he thought it was a dream and Yoda confirms Qui-Gon really is communicating with the living."

We'll see.

It doesn't bother me much, mainly because RotS wasn't all that.

In terms of scale, well, Ms. Fisher was short herself. So...I dunno. (Not having any Bespin Leia to compare my BAD Ugnaught with.)

Why is Star Wars full of worker class little people? Even the prequels had Utai and Pit Droids...which aren't people...but even with droids, the small ones do all the chores. We didn't see much of Kashyyyk, but I suspect they have some pint-sized laborers that do all the jobs wookies won't take.

I like the original Kenner's ability to sit down. And the soft goods weren't bad for its day.

For some reason one the POTF2 figures had a karate chop pose, probably for dealing with trespassing wookies.

I'm of the mind that the recent releases are too tall. They look nice. But based on recent figures, Bespin Cloud City has gigantism epidemic. Poor Lando is looking shorter all the time.

In the pics over at Rebelscum's rumor thread, the vintage carded Super Battle Droid is, of course, close to the same one that's been in Saga Legends for years, no ball jointed ankles. But it has a pistol or something in one hand, which is strange...don't recall them holding anything ever.

Let's see, I could wait and get the carded one with it's pistol for $8+, or get the Arena one with more articulation and another figure now for $13 (I think).

The POTF2 dancing Lobot is the definitive take on the character.  ;)

The Kenner one always reminded me of Don Rickles.

I found the OTC version for cheap at a Kay-Bee, the only Star Wars figure they had. And hte only OTC packaged figure I ever bought.

I don't think he needs an update, at least, not any time soon.

I noticed named Imperial Officers come up on rumor lists but hardly any are ever made. Needa was made. I can't recall any others, besides the Endor Battle Pack guy.

Hasbro's Deryl DePriest said Lucasfilm rejected Sarissa Jeng for the Arena Two-Packs, why would they take a bigger risk making her a single carded figure?

Savage Oppress is a super-awesome warrior because he was infused with evil magic? Really? All the training with weapons, mastery of the force...and now it's pumping up some village tough using sorcery and then telling them what to do? How come the Night Sisters aren't ruling the cosmos?

Ventress, if she earned any sympathy last time, she lost it all. She orders Oppress to betray someone close to him (which he does, cuz now he's demonic), even though she was the near-victim of a betrayal last episode. Is that gonna come back to bite her in the butt?

Roswell Grey Jedi perished! NOOOO!  :P

These look great!!

And I really like the mixed wave.  It's much more interesting to me.  And, honestly, if that was an all AOTC line, I might skip the clones.  But mixed up like that, I want them. Don't know why.

I assume the AT-RT pilot is very articulated, because we never got one that was SA.  Am I correct?

The 2005 carded one was SA, other than having just a swivel waist instead of a ball joint.

However, it was very difficult to get that figure to move its hips into a sitting position, meaning as a driver it sucked. It was possible to get them to sit, but the figure's hips would be loose/ least in my experience. 

Also, the 2005 figure's right hand was nearly worthless; it was made very wide, possibly to hold  a big spring action weapon. But the result was too wide to hold much of anything.

So it's a deserved upgrade, if coming years too late.
